FOR QUARRY/VINEYS RDS MULTI STOREY UNIT BLOCKS DA PROPOSAL DA/668/2018
We were warned that if the South Dural Rezoning Proposal to develop rural lands for high rise development was rejected, then the developers would try to achieve the same result through owner initiated Seniors and Disabled Living developments. WELL
IT'S HAPPENING NOW !!
A 7.4 acre ( 3 ha) proposal for :
9 x Three Storey Buildings
147 x two and three bedroom units
74 beds care facility
a single storey “wellness centre”
383 car parking spaces, 8 motor cycle spaces
2 x truck loading and unloading bays
is planned on rural land on 3 Quarry Rd right
through to 4 Vineys Rd Dural.
The traffic implications are serious especially when the congestion levels on our roads are already unacceptable.
We call upon our community to lodge an objection with Hornsby Council a.s.a.p. if they think the
proposal is inappropriate for Dural's rural area.
Below is just a short list of some of the reasons the proposal is inappropriate.
New legislation says that objections must be unique so we are not able to provide you with a proforma objection. However if you CLICK
HERE we provide a template and a quick way to lodge your objection with Hornsby Council.
If you choose to use some of the reasons below please phrase
them in your own words.
We strongly support the Greater Sydney Commission’s position that rural land must be preserved for rural purposes. They are vital and need to be protected by law in the public interest.
3 storey buildings are out of character with the rural area.
This is a massive over-development NOT remotely in keeping with the local area.
There is the likelihood of conflict between agricultural and residential land uses.
The site is not within 400 metres of a supermarket, butcher, or other essential raw food providers.
The site is not within 400 metres of community services such as churches, libraries etc
The intersection of Quarry and Old Northern Roads is heavily congested with residential, business and school traffic during long peak periods.
The intersection between New Line and Old Northern Roads is so congested during morning peak periods that it queues over 2km north beyond Galston Road.
The proponents rely on a traffic study prepared for the APP Corporation’s South Dural Planning Proposal which demonstrated that the 2016 traffic demands on Old Northern and New Line Roads could not be met.
The Dural area already has an over supply of seniors living and disabled retirement villages.
The retirement village is not in the best interest of the public when it is situated on rural zoned land.
There is no Sydney Water Sewer servicing the property.
